An old flower, yet rarely seen. It was sacred to the 
ancient Aztec Sun Worshippers of Old Mexico. The 
flowers are so strikingly beautiful that nothing else 
in your garden will draw as much attention. The 
unusual part about this Tiger Flower is that each 
flower lasts but a day, opening at dawn and going 
at sundown. Every morning there is a new flower, 
all through the summer, day after day; one of 
Nature's greatest miracles. They grow 24 inches 
tall and the blooms are large, often 6 inches across. 
Easy to grow, and we send you the simple planting 
instructions with every order. At our low prices, you 
can plant a whole bed of them and the joy and 
pleasure they will bring you cannot be told in mere 
words. Last year, we sold out, so we suggest that you 
order early. We have them in 4 separate colors: 
Scarlet, Rose, Yellow or Orange; also in the mixed. 

TIGER LILY — The old favorite with its orange-red 
flowers. Blooms from July to September. Select 
Bulbs, postpaid. Each 15c; 4 for 50c; 10 for $1.00.

FREE-BLOOMING PHILIPPINE LILY— A magnificent newlily that 
is sold under various names: Philippine, Philippinense Formosanum, 
Formosa, Wonder, and Dream. There are two types, Early Blooming 
and Late Blooming. The Late Blooming is recognized as being suparior, 
and that is the only one we sell. It starts blooming in midsummer and 
continues until frost, We know of no other lily that will produce as 
many flowers. The blooms are very large, often 7 inches long, and 
delightfully fragrant. They are almost pure white, just a tinge of 
coppery rose on the outside at the small end and a touch of green on 
the inside, back in the throat. 

They grow 3 to 4 feet tall, are perfectly hardy, easy to grow, require 
no special soil or care, and last for years. We urge you strongly to plant 
some of these lilies this spring. When the beautiful flowers appear this 
summer and fall, you will be delighted and enthused.

customers who like what we send them, and 
the way we serve them, here at Inter-State. 



From MISSOURI 

My order from you last spring gave me 
the best nursery stock I ever received. 
John Porter Garth 
Route 2, Kirksville, Mo, 

From IOWA 

/ have the nursery stock you sent me 
and in every respect is the best that I 
have ever seen. I have bought quite a 
little nursery stock in the last 18 years, 
but have never had such nice stock. I 
sure will recommend you to any of my 
friends. 

C. C. Grahl 

368 1 st. St., Council Bluffs, Iowa 

From PENNSYLVANIA 

Received my nursery stock and I was 
very proud and satisfied with it all. I 
just have to let you know that by all 
means I am more than satisfied so I 
want to thank you for your up-to-date, 
stock, your honesty, and your service. 
Remember, a satisfied customer is always 
the best advertising. Take my word for 
it, I'm one. Thank you. 

Walter Adams

From WISCONSIN 

Unity, Wisconsin 

We have received your trees which I 
confess are the best I have ever seen. 
They are planted and should grow to 
big trees with lots of apples in no time. 

W. J. Dehn, Prop. 

Maple Grove Cheese Factory 

From WEST VIRGINIA 

We have bought from your firm since 
19 34 and can truthfully say that no 
other firm has given us as much satis- 
faction as yours. We bought approxi- 
mately $20.00 of rose bushes in the last 
2 years. Last winter the temperature 
was low as 21 degrees below zero, and 
in March the Great Ohio River flood. 
My garden was under water to the depth 
of 19 ft., yet my roses were prettier and 
larger than ever before. My tulips had 
come up through six inches of mud that 
flood left and yet were beautiful. 
Mr. Clyde M. Ward 
New Cumberland, W. Va. 

From WASHINGTON 
Battle Ground, Wash. 
The fruit trees reached here in first class 
condition and were the best I've ever 
bought anywhere at any price. 

Mr. Ray Van Atta 
Route 2, Box 64 A 

From ILLINOIS 

/ ree'd my shipment of April 22nd, they 
were in excellent condition. I have 
never seen any nicer trees. I am sure 
I will have wonderful results with them. 
I showed them to my neighbors and 
friends, they all praised them highly. 

W. L. Lindsay 

818 N. Randolph St., Champaign, III. 

From GEORGIA 
/ received my shrubbery last week in 
good condition. I have ordered shrubs 
from you for three years and I have 
never lost one and they grow so fast 
and bloom the first year. I think I 
have a very pretty yard and I wish to 
thank you for it.

From DISTRICT of COLUMBIA 

When I got home shortly after noon- 
lime Saturday afternoon past I found 
a bundle of roses ordered February 13,

ter in my life. You are sending out 
marvelous stock.

My order arrived last night in fine shape 
— the moss was still damp — / marveled 
that it could come so far and be in 
such fine shape — better than from our 
Los Angeles Nurseries less than 200 
miles away. 

Mrs. Albert Jones 
Rancho Aljo, Alpine, Calif. 

From MISSOURI 

Our fruit trees, grapes, berries, bulbs 
and perennials we got of you last year 
are starting beautifully. Of the entire 
$35-oo I have no disappointments. My 
Karl Roscnfield had one blossom 2 
months after planting last spring. The 
wisteria also had a cluster of blossoms. 
Mrs. Martin E. Clark 
17 West 79th Terrace, Kansas City, Mo.

delivery. Your bulbs and trees are the 
fittest I ever saw. I am more than 
pleased. 

Harry McCoy 
Frankfort, Ind. 

From ILLINOIS 

/ 'would like to take this opportunity to 
express my utmost satisfaction with the 
Blaze Rose. It bloomed beautifully last 
year and appears to be very resistant to 
disease and unfavorable weather con- 
ditions. 

Mr. Harold V. Griffin 
New Lennox, III. 

From ILLINOIS 

About a year ago I purchased nearly 
300 shrubs from you, and I want to take 
this opportunity to tell you that every 
one grew beautifully; but how could 
they help it? The strong roots they 
had, even the smallest sized ones, only 
needed correct planting for success that, 
which was given to them. 
I sincerely hope all of your other cus- 
tomers are as well pleased as myself. 

Mrs. Lewis E. Hosier 

McBride Ave., R. F. D. 1, Box 248 

East St. Louis, III. 

From ILLINOIS 
/ 'want to tell you the roses I bought 
from you the last two years are the talk 
of the neighborhood. I hope these will 
be as beautiful. Thank you for your 
hottest and dependable attentions.

and blooms abundantly. You may count 



on my continued patronage, as I know

ering order recently sent to t you was

wish to state that the rose bushes were 
the finest we received from any nur- 
series from whom we purchased planting 
stock this year. 

T. T. Hawksworth 

Dime Bank Bldg., Detroit, Mich. 

From KANSAS 

By the way, I want to tell you that out 
of the six peach trees we got from you, 
three years ago, four of them bore 
heavily this year and I canned 80 
quarts besides eating them by the doz- 
ens. We have a family of six good 
eaters so think this speaks well for 
your trees. 

Mrs. T. W. Glidewell 
Silver Lake, Kansas 

From KANSAS 
Inclosed find check for more nursery 
stock, for when we opened our trees 
our delight knew no bounds; for uni- 
formity, size, ruggedttess, and alive- 
ness, they are the finest. I have ever 
seen. Now we want twenty- five more 
and will you please rush as we have the 
others planted and would like to get 
them all growing at the same time. 

Mrs. W. J. Newton

I'd buy from you.

beautiful rose garden. I ordered two 
dozen of your Gold Medal roses and

one mass of beautiful colors, the talk of 
all my friends. I am sending the names 
of three friends who would like to order 
for March planting. Will you please 
send them your 1937 catalog? 
Mr. Oscar P. Cox

College Hill, Cincinnati, Ohio 

From KANSAS 

/ ordered the One Dollar offer you had 
on the air last year and wasfmore than 
pleased with it. I never planted seeds 
before that grew like they did. I had 
a very fine garden. There are 6 in our 
family and we all like fresh vegetables. 
We had all we wanted from our garden 
from early spring until late fall and the 
parsnips are still in the garden, then I 
canned over 200 qts. of vegetables and 
all from one dollar. 

Mrs. H. A. Fischer 
Grainfield, Kansas 



From Manchukuo via Hamburg, la. 

The growing of Nursery stock reads like a romance. Let 
us briefly outline the history of a pear tree. 
First the seed is gathered in the mountainous country of 
northern China and Manchukuo , where there are no rail- 
roads or even roads, but merely trails. 

After many months, the seed arrives in this country. Then 
it is frozen and soaked, and planted in the spring. By late 
fall, these seeds have grown into small trees about a foot 
and a half tall. They are then dug. 

These small trees are no good for fruit as they are wild, 
but the roots are extremely hardy, vigorous and healthy 
and that is all we use of them. 

The folloioing spring they are planted. In the summer they 
are budded with the different varieties of pear trees, such 
as Patten, Bartlett, or Kieffer. These buds are put in at 
the ground line. After the small trees are budded, nothing 
more is done to them during the summer except to culti- 
vate them. 

Then the next spring the wild tree top is cut off just above 
the bud. The bud grows tip, and in two more years we 
have the fine pear tree which you get from us. 

It has taken four years from the time of planting the seed 
until the tree is ready to send to you. In the hands of our . 
experienced growers, this wild pear seed has been devel- 
oped into a superior, high quality pear tree. It takes three 
or four years to produce a cherry tree, three years a plum 
tree, two years a peach tree, three or four years an 
apple tree.

The Polly Peach that I got from 
you last year and also the one I got 
two years ago are just doing very 
fine. We had a very severe winter, 
as bad as we ever had it. Other 
peach trees have suffered. The twigs 
are brown and think that quite a 
few will die, but the Polly is just as 
green as can be and does not show 
the least sign of injury.

WHY OUR FRIENDS 
HAVE MADE US 



AMERICA'S FORE 



The story of a small Iowa 
nursery which grew to nat- 
ional fame in a few years 

The Inter-State Nurseries are owned 
and operated by three brothers : Carl 
0., Leslie R., and David L. 0. 
Sjulin. (Sjulin is a Scandinavian 
name and is pronounced "Shoe-lin.") 
After several years' experience with 
other nurseries, we started our own 
small nursery here at Hamburg, 
Iowa, in 1918. For many years we 
grew nursery stock for other nur- 
series, becoming one of the large 
growers in the middle west. 

Finally we decided that as long as we were 
growing the stock, we should also sell it 
direct to the customer. So in the spring of 
1931 we issued our first catalog. Since then, 
in the brief period of six years, we have grown 
to be the largest Direct-to-You Nurseries in 
America, with hundreds of thousands of 
customers from the Atlantic to the Pacific 
and Canada to the Gulf. 

We have been asked many times how we have 
built up this tremendous business in such a 
short time. The answer is simple. 

First — Greater values, better service and a 
sincere desire and effort to please you. 

Second — We have the practical knowledge 
of actually growing good stock. 

Third — An unusually favorable location 
for growing stock. 

Fourth — Our catalog is made so you can 
select exactly what you want. Moreover 
we list only the better varieties. 

Fifth — Just plain hard work. 

We hope you will enjoy looking through this 
book. Whatever you buy from it will be a 
truly profitable investment. The joy, the 
pride, the satisfaction that comes from having 
a beautiful home, a fine garden, cannot be

1. We guarantee our nursery stock arid seeds to be true to name; otherwise,

4. It is our earnest endeavor to satisfy our customers. We want you to be 
satisfied not only when you get our stock but also afterwards. When our 
fruits bear, when our roses bloom, when our seeds produce, etc., we want 
you to be enthusiastic about them. If you are not, and if you feel that it is 
our fault in any way, please write us. We want YOU TO BE SATISFIED.

MOST DIRECT-SELLING 



READ Y FOR 1937 

Our new modern head- 
quarters—designed and 
built to give you just the 
kind off service you want. 

We are very happy to be in our new, 
modern building. For over a year 
we worked on the preliminary plans. 
Last summer actual construction 
was started and the building fin- 
ished just before Christmas. 
The capacity of this large building 
is almost 500,000 cubic feet. Built of 
concrete and brick, it is absolutely 
fireproof. It contains special rooms 
with controlled temperature and 
humidity for handling nursery stock ; 
also special seed rooms. We are 
particularly proud of our ventilating 
system (proper ventilation is the 
most important requirement in a 
nursery building). It is our own 
original plan and enables us to keep 
our stock in perfect condition. 
We have been told that we now 
have the finest equipment and loca- 
tion of any nursery in America. In 
the first place, our land is the 
world-famous Marshall Loess soil, 
considered the finest on earth. In 
the second place, we have our own 
experienced growers. In the third 
place, we have this large, modern 
building, which means that from 
the time the stock is dug in the 
fields and brought into this build-

Remember that we do not ship the 
nursery stock until it is the right time 
for you to plant. 

So many folks wait until the last minute 
before they send in their orders. This 
makes it just like a Christmas rush in a 
big department store. If we get your 
order early, we can do all the preliminary 
work, such as booking order, writing 
labels and tags, etc. Then when the 
time comes for shipping, it is an easy 
matter to send out your order because 
everything is all ready to go. 
Therefore, if you will send us your order 
for NURSERY STOCK reasonably early, 
you may select FREE PREMIUMS as per 
the following schedule. 
On orders of $3.00 to S5.00, you may 
select ANY ONE of the 12 following Free 
Premiums. 

On orders of $5.00 to $9.00, you may 
select ANY TWO Free Premiums. 
On orders of $9.00 and up, you may 
select ANY FOUR Free Premiums.

ple Sweet Peas, 1 Packet

will be included right with your gather 
stock. 

REMEMBER, THESE FREE PREM- 
IUMS ARE ONLY ON ORDERS FOR

on seed orders, please see page 56. 

Suppose your order of nursery stock 
amounts to $3.85 (or any amount between 
$3.00 and $5.00) and you want the 3 
Packets of Flower Seeds as your Free 
Premium. Then at the bottom of your 
nursery stock order, you simply write

because with early orders we have every- 
thing ready to ship just as soon as plant- 
ing conditions are right, and you are 
sure to get what you want. Later in the 
season some items will be sold out. It 
helps us because it spreads the orders 
out over a longer period instead of 
bunching them iip in just a few weeks. 
We can give you better service. 

Please be sure and write on your nursery order the free premiums you 
select, otherwise, none will be sent you.

Inter-State is one of America's 
Greatest Growers of Fruit 
Trees. Here we show large 
blocks of apple, cherry, pear 
and plum — hundreds of thou- 
stands — the very trees we will 
send out this spring. We wish 
you could hold some of them 
in your hand so that you 
could see the fine tops, and 
most important of all, the 
wonderful root system. These 
trees are absolutely guaran- 
teed to be satisfactory to you. 



PLANT A SMALL ORCHARD 
IMs SPRING r 



Know the satisfaction of having a full fruit 
pantry — with plenty of sauce, jelly and pre- 
serves all winter long! It costs so little when 
you have your own fruit trees. Think of it! 
A complete small orchard for no more than 
you now pay for a few bushels of fruit! 

The housewife ( who has to prepare three meals a day 
knows how much it helps to have plenty of jars of 
delicious home canned fruit for sauce, pies, cobblers 
and puddings — especially during the winter months 
when planning a wholesome meal is a problem. And 
remember the SAVING when you can open YOUR 
OWN JARS of fruit, fruit that you know was canned 
at its peak of perfection, fully ripe, juicy and sweet. 
How the children and men folks enjoy real old fash- 
ioned spicy apple butter! And WHO CAN DENY 
that homemade pies are often the key to a man's 
heart? Children's school lunches are made easier and 
more wholesome when you have plenty of home grown 
fruit. 

WHY BUY FRUIT? GROW YOUR OWN 

So plant a small orchard THIS SPRING. You will be 
planting HEALTH, WEALTH and HAPPINESS. 
You will be preparing for long winter months as well 
as providing plenty of FRESH FRUIT in season for 
table use. The money you are now spending for buy- 
ing fruit will more than pay for a small orchard. 
Then you can have ALL THE FRUIT you need when 
you want it, FOR A LIFETIME. 

FILL THOSE JARS WITH 
HOME GROWN FRUIT

How inviting appears the home that is "framed" 
with lovely shade trees. Their beauty also proves 
itself practical by keeping off the intense heat in 
the summer and the cold winds in winter. 

Help make your street more attractive by lining 
it with shade trees. If the hot afternoon sun 
shines into your home, plant a tree to the south- 
west. Shade trees will give you more permanent 
beauty and comfort per dollar than anything 
else you can buy. 

BIRCH, SILVER (Cut Leaf Weeping)— Consid- 
ered the most beautiful of all trees. Delicately 
cut leaves on graceful, drooping branches. The 
gleaming white bark is beautiful summer and 
winter. Especially fine for lawns, as a specimen 
or in groups. 

HOPA FLOWERING CRAB— A very striking 
tree with attractive maroon colored foliage all 
season. In the spring it is a mass of beautiful 
rose-pink flowers. In the fall it is full of the lovely 
little red fruits. The tree grows everywhere and 
attains only a medium height. We are making a' 
very low price on this fine tree, 

MAPLE, NOR WAY— An exceptionally fine tree 
for lawn and street planting. As the picture 
shows, it makes a perfect tree. The rich green 
foliage colors a light yellow in the fall. Notice 
the very low price we are making. 

MAPLE, PURPLE (Schwedler)— A magnifi- 
cent tree for lawn or parking. In the spring, the 
foliage is reddish-purple; in midsummer, it is 
purplish green, in the fall, golden yellow. It 
makes a perfectly shaped tree. 

MAPLE, SUGAR (Hard)— Foliage colors so 
beautifully in the fall, orange, yellow, scarlet. 

MOUNTAIN ASH— Full of clusters of red ber- 
ries from midsummer into winter. 

r 
POPLAR, LOMBARDY— Everybody knows 
the striking appearance of this tall, narrow- 
growing tree, like a church spire. Fine for screen* 
and background. Grows rapidly. You have 
always wanted some of these unusual trees. Yoi 
can get them now at a very low price, especiall)

k for Every Farm 



CHINESE ELM 

Because of its beauty and extremely 
rapid growth, the Chinese Elm has 
become the leading shade tree of Amer- 
ica. It is planted in every state, stand- 
ing intense cold and extreme heat 
extremely well. Under ordinary condi- 
tions, it makes excellent shade in five 
short years, as its average growth is 
five feet a year. It is by far, the fastest 
growing hard-wooded shade tree.

The dust storms of the past-few years have shown us the urgent need of windbreaks in, 
summer And they break the force of the cold, wintery winds. If your farm buildings are 
protected by a windbreak, your cows will give more milk, your steers make more gainsj 
your hens lay more eggs, and it will take less fuel to heat your home. A windbreak doe* 
good summer and winter. Makes farming more pleasant and profitable. 
Below are listed younger Chinese Elm seedling trees. They are especially fine for windbreaW 
and wood lot planting. No tree will make a windbreak as quickly as these young Chines* 
Elm It leafs out verv early in the spring and the leaves hang on very late in the fall. It naj 
such a dense mass of twigs, branches and limbs, that even with the leaves off, it makes i 
very effective windbreak. No matter whether you live in North Dakota or Texas or anfl 
state in between, plant Chinese Elm. It grows in all states. It stands cold, it stands heat, 11 
even stands alkali. 

We have a fine lot of these Chinese Elm and we are making the lowest price we have evei 
made, so that EVERY FARM CAN HAVE A WINDBREAK. Plant yours this spring. jM 
less than 5 years, you will write us, telling us you wouldn't take hundreds of dollars i<| 
your windbreak.

SENSATIONAL NEW BOYSENBERRY 

The Best Berry Ever Grown 

Immense Size . . . Delicious Flavor . . . 
Heavy Bearer . . . Hardy 

Look closely at the picture below. It shows the amazing new Boy- 
senberry. A cross of the blackberry, raspberry and loganberry, and 
is far more vigorous than any of its parents. When we tell you that 
the berries are actually larger than pictured here, then you will 
agree that they are immense in size. If you could taste them, you 
would also agree that in flavor they stand supreme. It is impossible 
to describe on paper their delicious sweet flavor. We simply tell you 
that whether eaten fresh or with cream, or canned for sauce, jam, 
jelly cr preserves or in pies, tarts, short-cakes, it is superior in 
every way to any other berry grown. It is almost seedless: is firm 
and therefore a good shipping berry. The berries are produced in 
large clusters on long stems that stand away from the canes.

The plant is a tremendous, vigorous grower, and every cane is 
simply loaded with fruit. The fruit ripens over a very long period, 
almost two months. The plants will grow better if allowed to grow 
right on the ground, merely training the canes in straight rows. If 
you prefer, you can train the canes on a fence or wires. If you have 
only a small space in your garden, plant a few Boysenberries. You 
will be astonished at the amount of fruit you will get from only a 
few plants. Eat them fresh for weeks and "can the rest. You never 
put in jars any fruit that tasted better. 

Boysen berry is new, so we do not know exactly how far north it can 
be grown without winter protection. So far we have not heard any 
reports of winter injury, plants standing 10 to 17 below zero with- 
out any damage. Therefore, in general, we recommend planting 
Boysenberry in any section where blackberries can be grown. We 
recommend, though, that in extreme cold sections canes should 
remain on the ground for the first winter and mulched with straw. 

You can make money selling the fruit.. It is so large and handsome 
it sells on sight at very good prices. Folks have sold as much as 
SI, 700.00 worth from just one acre. Many acres have produced 
over SI, 000. 00 worth. The average city lot will hold 200 plants. 
One grower made over S300.00 in one season from just 100 plants. 

We again advise you to plant Boysenberries this spring. Plant real 
early and you will get a few sample berries the first season. But 
your big crop will come the second year, and so continue every 
year. Plant them for you own use. It is fun to pick them, the boxes 
fill up so fast. Plant enough so you will have fruit, to sell. They will 
make you mighty good money. Be the first in your territory to 
have this wonderful new delicious fruit. Your customers will buy 
the fruit the first time because it looks so fine, and continue to buy 
because they like the fruit so well. 

Our Boysenberry is absolutely guaranteed to be true to name, as 
they aTe grown from original stock. Our stock is limited, so get your 
order in early. PLANT BOYSENBERRY THIS SPRING. 

We send you Select No. 1 Plants postpaid right to your door and 
guarantee them to reach you in good condition.

ASPARAGUS 



This is an improved strain of Mary Washington, 
and we can recommend it as being the finest of all 
asparagus. It produces very large stalks, and they 
keep right on coming up, lots of them, for almost 
three months. They are extremely tender and do 
not get tough early, as so many varieties do. They 
have the most delicious flavor. Rust-proof and will 
last a lifetime. 

In every garden there is room for some asparagus. 
Just a little space in the garden or along the fence 
row or in front of a shed. You know how good fresh, 
home grown asparagus tastes. It is very rich in min- 
erals and vitamins, so it is very healthful. We rec- 
ommend planting the Jumbo and Heavy Plants. 
They are larger and a year older, therefore will give 
quicker results. The Jumbo are especially large, fine 
plants, the finest we ever sold. Very easy to grow. 
Planting instructions sent with every order. 

You can make money growing asparagus to sell. It 
brings good prices. A space of ground 35 feet square 
is enough room for 250 plants. Notice our low 
prices, possible because we have almost a million 
plants, the finest you ever saw. Plant a big bed this 
spring. Enough for your own use and some to sell.

you. PLANT STRAWBERRIES EARLY, JUST AS

pAWed THE WORLD'S BEST 



Polly and Sungold, the new hardy strains 
that moved the Peach Belt 100 miles north 

WITHSTAND DROUGHT AND BITTER COLD 



You folks who live in the north, even where 
it gets 10 to 15 below zero, can now raise 
your own peaches, as Polly is so much 
hardier. BUT WE WANT TO EMPHA- 
SIZE THIS FACT— POLLY is not just a 
peach for the cold states, but should be 



planted EVERYWHERE. The fruit has 
such a wonderful flavor and it bears so 
heavily that POLLY IS an outstanding 
peach even where other peaches can be 
grown. We honestly tell you POLLY is the 
FINEST WHITE PEACH. 




The original strain of POLLY was intro- 
duced exclusively by the Inter-State Nur- 
series in 1934. 

POLLY originated at the Experiment Sta- 
tion of Iowa State College, Ames, Iowa. It 
was sent to Mr. J. W. Carter, one of Iowa's

mistake the original tree was destroyed.

In the insert above we show Mr. 
Carterand daughter Polly ,in whose 
honor this great peach was named. 
The tree in the picture is a POLLY 
tree growing in the orchard of Mr. 
Reinecke. This picture was taken 
in summer 1936 and you can see 
that the tree is growing vigorously 
i n spite of the winter of 1 935-1 936 
which broke all our cold weather 
records. Al I other varieties of peach 
trees (except Sungold) in this 
vicinity were killed outright. 

POLLY is a healthy, very vigorous 
grower of semi-spreading upright 
form with strong branches. It is a 
very heavy bearer. The fruit is 
large, beautifully blushed, a per- 
fect free-stone, and ripens a few 
days before Elberta. The flesh is 
white, juicy but firm, and full of 
the richest, most luscious flavor. 
All who have tasted POLLY agree 
that it is the finest peach they ever 
ate. When canned it stays firm and 
you ladies known this makes the 
sauce look so much more attrac- 
tive, POLLY is best for home use 
and local markets, as it will not 
stand long distance shipping. 



WINTER-HARDY PEACHES 





The picture shows Mr. and Mrs. Kirstein, 
the originators of the Sungold peach. The 
tree is one growing in the orchard of Mr. 
Reinecke. This photograph was taken the 
summer of 1936, so you can see what a 
vigorous growth it made in spite of the 
record-breaking cold winter of 1935-6. 
SUNGOLD and POLLY were the only 
varieties of peach trees that survived the 
cold winter in this locality. 

Sungold originated in Des Moines, Iowa. 
Ordinarily that is entirely too far north to 
grow peaches, but for 15 winters this tree 
went through BELOW ZERO temperature, 
10, 15, even 22 below zero, and bearing full 
crops the following summers. We know of 
no other yellow peach in all America which 
has made such a record. Moreover, young 
trees propagated from the original also have 
gone through 20 below zero and bearing 
good crops the following summer. 

The fruit of SUNGOLD is very large, free- 
stone, yellow skin beautifully blushed. The 
flesh is firm, golden yellow, full of juice, 
and the richest, sweetest flavor, exception- 
ally fine quality. It wil I be a great commercial 
peach because it will stand shipping and 
colors early. It ripens several days before 
Elberta. The tree is a strong, stocky grower, 
well-branched, with healthy dark green 
foliage, an extremely good bearer. 



A GREAT PEACH 
FOR ALL AMERICA 

We believe Sungold will thrive in all states 
except those where the temperature falls 20 
to 30 below zero for long periods. We rec- 
ommend it to those in the north who hereto- 
fore have been unable to grow peaches regu- 
larly and profitably because they got a crop 
only now and then. SUNGOLD is very defi- 
nitely a HARDIER PEACH. We also recom- 
mend it to you farther south who can grow 
other varieties of peaches. You will find 



SUNGOLD 

Actual Size). 

(Plant Patent Applied for) 



SUNGOLD a very superior peach because of 
its GREAT SIZE, BEAUTIFUL COLOR, 
HIGH QUALITY and HIGH PRODUC- 
TION. Compared to Elberta, SUNGOLD is 
much larger, better colored, very, -much finer 
quality and far hardier. It lives and bears 
where Elberta dies. Compared to J. H. Hale, 
it is larger, equal or better in quality, far 
hardier and is self-pollenizing so will produce 
far more fruit.

INTER-STATE PEACHES 

Bear young, produce heavily! At their best 
when picked fresh from your own trees / 



The flavor and sugar in peaches are 
added by nature at the very last- 
so, to be at their best, they should 
not be picked until they are fully 
tree ripened. You will never know 
how good peaches can taste until 
you pick them fully ripe from your 
own trees. The price of just one 



bushel of peaches will pay for 
enough trees to bear many, many 
bushels of deliriously flavored home- 
grown peaches. They are easy to 
grow and need but little room. Our 
Iowa-grown budded peach trees are 
hardy and bear young.

APRICOTS 




PATTEN 



Another good backyard fruit — very easy to grow 



Who does not like apricot sauce and pre- 
serves? They ripen right after cherries and 
just before the early peaches. If you can, 
plant them on a north slope. They are so easy 
to grow. The late frosts may 
catch the blooms sometimes, but 
my gracious, the trees do not 
require any special care and are 
as pretty as a shade tree. Home- 
grown, tree-ripened apricots are 



one of the most delicious of all fruits. 
SUPERB— Best variety for the middle west. 
Hardy, productive, bears when others fail. 
Fruit is medium size, high quality.

ANOTHER WAY 

When you have made out your fruit tree 
order, add up the total number of fruit trees. 
Then figure the price according to the 
TOTAL NUMBER OF FRUIT TREES. If 
you buy 6 to 12 fruit trees, use the "Per 6" 
prices ; if you buy 1 2 to 25, use the "Per 1 2" 
prices; if you buy 25 or more, use the "Per 
25" prices. Be sure and use the apple prices 
for the apple trees; cherry prices for the 
cherry trees, etc. For example, suppose your 
order is for 17 selected 5-7 ft. fruit trees as 
follows: 



TO SAVE MONEY 

8 Apple Trees at $5.40 per 12 $3.60 

3 Cherry Trees at 6.00 per 12 1.50 

2 Pear Trees at 5.40 per 12 90 

2 Plum Trees at 6.60 per 12 2.IO 

2 Peach Trees at 5.25 per 12 88 

17 Fruit Trees Total $7.98 

Ordinarily you would figure the 8 apple 
trees at the "Per 6" price and all the others 
at the "Each" price. But we give you the 
"Per 12" price on all of them, actually sav- 
ing $1.47 on the above order. If your order 
totaled 25 trees, then you would get the 
"Per 25" pries.

GOLDEN GLOW . . . u „ q „ es «„ naMy 

the greatest hardy yellow climbing rose in the 
world today ... beautiful, vigorous, free-blooming! 



We wish that you could have seen this magnificent 
new rose as we first saw it in the rose-breeding garden 
of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Brownell, the originators. 
There were four young plants, each with many canes 
from six to ten feet long, and so completely covered 
with the glowing, golden yellow blooms that one 
could hardly see the rich green, healthy foliage. And 
besides all the open blossoms, there were hundreds 
of partly open and tight buds to furnish flowers for 
a long time. It was the finest and greatest display of 
yellow roses tve ever saw. 

GOLDEN GLOW is not a rose that needs to be pam- 
pered and petted, but is a thrifty, healthy, vigorous 
grower and extremely hardy. For beauty of color, for 
freedom of bloom, and for vigor and hardiness, 
GOLDEN GLOW sets a new standard for hardy 
yellow climbing roses. We recommend it with full 
assurance that it will delight you. Postpaid prices 
on 2 Year, No. 1, finest field-grown plants.

PLANT PATENT PENDING 



and STARGOLD E verbh 



oommg 



Mrs. Bessie Copper, Route 1, 
Overton, Nebraska, was 
awarded $250,00 cash for 
naming this wonderful new 
rose. 





STARGOLD is a rose that in 
five, ten, fifteen, yes twen* 
ty-five or more years, 
will be even more 
beautiful than the 
first summer. 
Each passing 
year will add to 
its glory. 

PLANT PAT. PEND. 



STARGOLD is the first of a 
new race of ever blooming 
bush roses— the SUB-ZERO 
ROSES. It was originated by Mr. and 
Mrs. W. D. Brownell, and while under 
test withstood 30 below zero and 23 
below zero, and bloomed normally the 
following summers. 

The beautiful flowers are the purest 
yellow of all rose bushes and are de- 
lightfully fragrant. Very fine for gar- 
den display and cutting. The plant is 
a vigorous, healthy grower, and very 
free bloomer. Fine everywhere, and 
especially for those sections where 
ordinary varieties do not thrive. 

STARGOLD is sold only by the 
Inter-State Nurseries, Hamburg, 
Iowa, and we are introducing it this 
spring at a reasonable price because 
we want thousands of rose lovers to 
plant this great new rose.

EARLY BRONZE 



VIVID 



For living fences 

beauty, privacy and protection 



A friendly, living hedge will give a touch of privacy to 
your home, yet it will not interfere with the view. Beauti- 
ful along walks, driveway and lot lines. Each passing year 
adds to its beauty. Our plants are grown especially for 
hedging. They are hardy, stocky, well-branched and 
nicely rooted. They will give you quick results. If you 
want a good tight hedge, plant one foot apart. With each 
order we send planting instructions telling how to make 
the best hedge. 

BARBERRY, JAPANESE (Thunberg's)— A very popular low growing 
hedge. If not trimmed, it makes a dense, rounded hedge 2 to 3 feet tall 
and almost ^ as wide. But it can be trimmed to any desired height and 
width. Foliage is bright green, turning to a beautiful orange-scarlet in 
the fall. All winter.,the bright red berries gleam along the branches. 
Grows in sun or partial shade. This is the rust-free variety which can be 
planted everywhere. If there is a corner of your yard where people 
"cut across", plant some of these and they will stop it. 

BARBERRY, RED LEAF— The brightest of all hedges. The leaves are 
rich, lustrous bronzy-red, becon ing more brilliant through the summer 
and fall. Has red berries through the winter. It naturally makes a dense, 
rounded hedge 2 to 3 feet tall, but can be trimmed to any desired height. 
Plant in full sunlight to develop full color. Pictured on page 38. 

CHINESE ELM— Grows like magic. In China, its original home, it has 
been used as a hedge for centuries. It can be kept trimmed to a medium 
height hedge or a taller screen. Makes an immense number of small 
twigs, just full of leaves. Therefore when trimmed it makes a very com- 
pact, dense hedge. Perfectly hardy and planted in every state. Grows so 
rapidly that it will make a hedge' in just a few months. The more you 
trim it, the bushier it gets. As it becomes known, we believe that it will 
he planted for hedging by the millions. HARDY, BEAUTIFUL, FAST 
GROWING AND PRICED VERY LOW. 

HONEYSUCKLE, TARTARIAN— Makes a fine tall hedge or screen, 
growing 8 to 10 feet tall. Pink flowers in May followed by great clusters 
of orange and red berries. It can also be trimmed, making a good medium 
height hedge. Grows in sun or partial shade. Especially fine for drier 
parts of Kansas and Nebraska. Grows everywhere. Pictured on page 42. 

MULBERRY, RUSSIAN — A quick growing economical hedge. 

HARDY RUSSIAN PRIVET (Amoor River North)— This is the most 
widely planted hardy trimmed hedge. The shiny leaves hang on late in 
the fall. Makes a fine trimmed hedge any height you want. This hedge is 
hardy, but California Privet is not hardy (that is why we do not list the 
California). This hardy privet hedge adds a distinguished touch to any 
yard. 

SPIREA VAN HOUTTE (Bridal Wreath)— We consider this to be the 
pest plant for a hedge, whether you wish a medium tall untrimmed flower- 
ing hedge or a low trimmed hedge. It makes the most beautiful flowering 
hedge. When trimmed, it makes a dense,. bushy hedge hugging the ground 
closely. It is absolutely hardy, easy to grow and grows everywhere, in 
sun or partial shade. For a natural hedge, set 2 feet apart. For a trimmed 
hedge, set 1 foot apart.
